HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY TO YOU ALL!! Isn't this trailer cute as a stinkin button!! No, it's not mine but a gal can dream can't she?!Instead we will truly be roughing it and pitching our good ol two bedroom tent. I'll be trying to snooze in my bag on the hard ground smacking at the mosquitos that the kids let in after going in and out a gazillion times and praying that spiders don't crawl in my mouth if I actually do fall asleep!!! Oh how the kids love it and to me that makes it all worth it!!!

Love the trailer...Hubs wants to get an Airstream since I am not as excited about the tent in my "Old" age. Actually its my back that is old....I love to be out camping, I just need memory foam to sleep on. Have fun!!

Karen said...

Just think! Fresh air! Beautiful vistas! Home cooking for REAL! Family and friends all safe and together to celebrate our Independence and Freedom!
How awesome is that? You lucky duck. Enjoy every mosquito bite, every fly, every ant, and every raindrop. These times'll be gone before you know it!
Be safe and RELAX!
ps, a little glass of wine before bed might just be the cure . . . :)

I just love the look of the retro campers ... BUT.... My idea of roughing it is the Plaza in NYC. I am so not a camping-girl!! LOL!!
Happy 4th!!

Honey, I thought that is the cutest camper I have ever seen. Yes we can dream and that would be a great way to camp. Be careful and enjoy your tent camping! Love to all!

Thanks for stopping by. Right now the cottage will have to wait, but God has provided a wonderful home for us. Hope you have fun camping. My husband and I went for the first time in a long time the first of June. Tent style, except we did have an air mattress. Makes a world of difference. We loved it. We actually camped at the beach and the weather was great! I am hoping we can do it again in the fall. Love your blog. Great garden! Glad I found you will be visiting again. Jackie

Hope you had a good time and that your back isn't hurting too badly! Love those Airstream trailers.

What a cute camper. I guess we can all dream, can't we? Hope you had a wonderful 4th!

I love the rusty chair that your daughter pulled out of the trash. That was so sweet and it looks great.

Oh and another name for the lovely yellow flowers in your post below is evening primrose. A dear friend gave me some years ago and then we planted gooseneck loosestrife and it completely choked it out. I always adored the sunny flowers.

I don't know how to link properly--

Hi Jen,
I hope you have a wonderful camping trip! I am sure the kids will love it, and hope you encounter no mosquitoes or spiders! :) Have a blast! :)

Now, that was FUNNY....and quite truthful, huh? :-) I LOVE camping, but the darling Hubbs?...not so much. Unless we buy one of those 300,000 dollar RV'S...I just don't see that happening any time soon! I adore that little red trailer though. Isn't that just too cute?
